BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Used at left tackle last season after spending the prior two years at guard.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized small-area blocker who works best on the strong side. Patient, plays with good pad level and gets after assignments. Strong at the point, controls opponents and effectively uses his hands.
NEGATIVES: Struggles to adjust, lacks lateral blocking range and playing balance. Not effective in motion.
ANALYSIS: A good-sized blocker who plays with a nasty attitude, Martin is a multi-dimensional lineman with better-than-average potential for the next level. Best in confined quarters at guard, yet also will get consideration as a right tackle.
